Margaret becomes a Foundation heroine

Margaret Hammond, one of the founder members of the Rotary Club of Haworth & Worth Valley, joined an elite band of Rotary members worldwide when she became a major donor to the movement’s own charity, the Rotary Foundation.

She achieved that landmark when she passed the landmark of donating more than $(US)10,000 to the charity during her career as a Rotarian.

To mark this significant landmark Rotarian David Phillips the District Governor for Rotary District 1040 (West and East Yorkshire with North Lincolnshire) and Stephen Ellis, District 1040’s Rotary Foundation Lead,. travelled to Springbank Care Home in Silsden to present her with a medallion from Rotary International.

David said: “Margaret has made a significant contribution to the Rotary Foundation and she thoroughly deserves this recognition.

“Margaret is now one of the few Major Donors currently in our District of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire and she is an inspiration to Rotarians in both counties.”

Stephen Ellis presented Margaret with a display of flowers on behalf of all the Rotarians in District 1040.

And to make Margaret’s day extra special she was joined by her brother Alan Atkinson (pictured above on the far left) with Stephen Ellis, Margaret and David Phillips.

Margaret’s award is the icing on the case for the Rotary Club of Haworth & Worth Valley as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.
